3 Spring Cleaning Tips to Help Your Home Show Better

Spring is here which means now is the best time to start thinking about what you need to do to get your home in tip-top shape. Beautiful weather will bring out the buyers and if you're selling a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you want your home to be ready for all the showings you're likely to have coming up. The Fran Campbell Team wants to provide you with some helpful tips to make sure your home is show-ready and entices those buyers!

Take Care of These 3 Spring Cleaning Items to Make Your Home Show-Ready:


1. Maintain your Lawn
Lawn maintenance is one of the biggest first impression make or break items homeowners should pay special attention to. Your home's exterior is the first impression that a buyer gets of your home. If your lawn is overgrown and unkempt, that will give the impression that you don't put care into the home and gives the idea that there could be other neglected maintenance issues with your home. Plus, a neglected lawn is not very inviting. Keep your grass cut regularly, trim trees limbs away from your home's roof, power lines and driveways. Prune the bushes in your yard and make sure they are trimmed neatly so as to avoid covering up windows or entry ways.

2. Touch up paint
Don't let your home get passed by because a buyer sees it and immediately thinks of work to make it pretty again. Scuffed trim and door jambs, and dinged up walls are going to scream extra work required to any potential buyer - and if they're not looking for a project home, they're going to mark your home off their list. Take the time to touch up paint throughout the interior AND exterior of your home to give it a fresh crisp facelift.

3. Power wash exterior of home and driveway
Fall and winter tend to be pretty harsh on the exterior of our homes and driveways. To wash away the built up dirt and grime, power wash your home's siding, decks or patios, and driveway. This will give the exterior of your home a fresh look and help to create a good first impression to those buyers who may drive by before scheduling an appointment to view the home. Take it a step further, and hire a power washing company to come out to do this for you, as they can look over the exterior of your home objectively and may see things that you might have missed since you're not sure what to look for.
